Great Is The Joy ~ song lyrics

Updated on March 7, 2011

Great Is The Joy

Great was the joy of the rescued...
wind-tossed and battered at sea.
They called out with fear to the Master
"Peace be still!", said He.

Great was the joy of the leper...
shamed and an outcast was he.
Master, if You will but touch me...
"Be thou clean!", said He.

Great was the joy of the blind man,
thrust into darkness was he.
Jesus, have pity, restore me...
"I am the Light!" , said He.

Great was the joy of the deaf man
born into silence was he...
Master, have mercy, and heal me...
"Hear My Voice!", said He.

Great was the joy of the hungry
Too many and little to eat.
"Bring Me your few loaves and fishes"
"Feed the people!", said He.

Great is the joy of the rescued...
I was captive and longed to be free...
Jesus, have mercy please save me..
And He offered His Life up for me!

Great is the joy of salvation...
a world filled with darkness are we.
Jesus, have mercy, please save us...
"I am the Life", says He.

      Paul, I am thrilled to hear this. I don't know about "predestination"...but I do know that there are no accidents in God's world, and all happens unto purpose. I have a feeling about you, have from the first time I read your work, and I believe there is a definite purpose at work in you. Don't have a crystal ball so I don't know what it is, but...I know that it is.

      Tndr- After reading this today, I now know why I had managed to just fall behind in my readings and more into my life. HE was saving this for when I was needing to read it most. Thank you for helping turn the tide inside me just a little more back to the brighter path. -Paul

      epigramman your comments just leave a smile on my face that lingers! I love music of many kinds and always wished I could write it but I am no musician...then along came these two songs with lyric and tune included, in my head! I love Gospel and Contemporary Christian the most and my spirit and soul is moved deeply by them...Have no idea what to do with these other than to share the lyrics here until I can get an instrument of some sort to help me write the music! I am happy that you like them! God writes a heck of a song! LOL...
